Webinar on Rubrics Scheduled For July
NATA
Jamie Mansell, PhD, LAT, ATC, is presenting "Creating an Effective Rubric for Classroom and Clinical Experiences" at 11 a.m. CT on July 15. Rubrics have been described as an assessment tool that saves time grading, conveys objective feedback and promotes student learning. In this session, participants will look at how rubrics can accomplish these three worthwhile objectives, as well as explore their limitations and engage in the process of rubric development. Within athletic training education, there are several opportunities that lend themselves to the use of rubrics. Not only can they be effective for written, oral and group assignments, but during practical and clinically-based assessments, rubrics can be used by multiple instructors, preceptors and peers with similar outcome measurements.

World Cup Artificial Turf Battle: Is Grass Better?
Discovery News
When the world's best women’s soccer players lace up their cleats in Canada for the World Cup, they will be playing on a surface that many professional players avoid if possible: artificial turf. While it's easier to maintain and lasts longer, many players complain it's "second-class," causing "turf burns" that chew up unexposed skin on thighs and elbows, or posing a greater risk of twisted knees and ankles.
